Carelessly discarded fishing lines or even kite strings are a threat to our wildlife. Birds regularly get strangled by them include mynas, kingfishers, sea-eagles, owls and even hornbills LINK.
Now we have a bat as the latest victim, documented by Jeremiah Loei of the Birds, Insects N Creatures Of Asia
Jeremiah saw this bat in distress, trapped by an abandoned fishing hook and wrote: “So those of you who do fishing, please be responsible to clear or remove all hooks near your fishing ponds. They’re gonna be a Danger trap for other Wildlife! Singapore.”
